The Muslims’ Failure & the Enemy Occupation
The moral collapse
To condemn terrible brutalities, it doesn’t cost physical energy, money or blood; it only needs sound morality. The Muslims have failed utterly to show such morality again and again in the history. Instead, millions of them have joined the enemies to celebrate their occupation and destruction. Thousands of them even work as the mercenaries to strengthen the kuffar occupation. In 2003, many Iraqis were seen dancing in the street of Baghdad while the country was taken over by the US invaders. In 2001, that happened in Kabul, too. In 2016, thousands of people in Mali celebrated the French takeover. The same celebration was seen in the street of Dhaka in 16th December in 1971, when the occupying Indian Army took over Bangladesh. This owes to deep de-Islamisation and total ideological conversion. Such de-Islamisation cum the ideological conversion to secularism, tribalism, nationalism, and western liberalism are the key strategies of any anti-Islamic rule in any part of the Muslim World. The enemies of Islam may fail in religious conversion, but have been very successful to cause such ideological conversion. As a result, these converts could accept the heroes of the enemies as their own heroes; and could overlook the worst crimes of occupation and exploitation. Because of such moral perversion cum collapse, they could celebrate the total destruction of the cities in Iraq and Syria as great victories.
Robbers, killers, and thieves also celebrate their worst crimes as great successes. The imperialists, the colonialists, the capitalists and the invaders too, celebrate their worst crimes. This is why, destruction of entire Mosul and other Iraqi and Syrian cities generated such a huge sense of triumph in the imperialist camp. A Shia can also celebrate such destruction of a major Sunni Muslim city. But, how a Sunni Muslim could join such celebration? It is only possible when moral death precedes physical death. Such a moral death is so profound in the Muslim World that not a single Muslim country or a single Islamic organisation came forward to condemn such an entire destruction of the historic city of Mosul –the second largest city of Iraq. With such an absence of morality, how one would stand in front of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’al and His prophet (peace be upon him) on the Day of Judgement? On the day of judgement, every Muslim will be asked to give the account vis-à-vis his or her contribution to save the ummah from such awful occupation and destruction. Will be also asked, how his or her physical, intellectual and financial ability or endowment was spent.
In annals of history, people have read horrendous brutalities of the crusaders and the Mongol warlords like Chengis and Halaku. But their brutality look novice if compared to the industrial scale of destruction by the US-led coalition, the Russian Army, the Syrian Army and the Iraqi Army in Mosul, Aleppo, Raqqa, Homs, Hams, Ramadi, Tikrit, Falluja, Kobani and many other historic cities. These cities could survive the Mongol atrocities, but couldn’t stand on their feet this time. These historical cities now look mere piles of rubbles; not a single building stands intact in their midst. For such planned destruction, the selfish autocrats forged alliance with the USA and Russia –the countries that have the highest expertise in this field. The rulers in Baghdad and Damascus and the leaders of the Kurdish tribes also urged the US President and President Putin of Russia for aerial bombing on these Muslim cities. Hence, what the US could do in Hiroshima and Nagasaki or what Russian could do in Grozny, they did hundred times more than that in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, and Yemen. It is now revealed how these so-called Muslims rejoice the worst crimes in the Muslim land.
Such a wholesale depletion of morality never happened in the past. While the European colonialists were engaged in colonial occupation of the weaker peoples of Asia, Africa, Americas, Australia and New Zealand and were conducting an ethnic cleansing of Red Indians, Aborigines, and Maoris or while Adolf Hitler of Germany was putting Jews in the gas chambers, at least there were some people to condemn such utter barbarity. But now, a huge void has overwhelmed the whole moral premise all over the world. Therefore, the brutal occupation of Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, and Iraq and dropping of chemical bombs, cluster bombs, barrel bombs, chemical bombs and mother of all bombs could go un-condemned in the UNO, OIC, Arab League and other international forums.
In such a state of occupation and state-run terrorism, even the most basic religious rights of the Muslims stay heavily restrained. Even in Islam’s heart lands, those who want to practise sharia, hudud, khilafa, trans-ethnic Muslims unity, jihad against occupation and other obligatory basics of Islam are killed with a label of terrorism. Even the popular election victory of the Islamist is condemned as terrorism –as happened in Algeria in 1992, in Palestine in 2006 and in Egypt in 2012. As if, non-conversion to the Western ideologies and non-acceptance of the imperialists’ dominance on the Muslim World are the marker of terrorism. Hence, even fair election victory of the Islamists in any Muslim country is not acceptable to the West. Whereas, making war, dividing a Muslim country and killing people for tribal, linguistic, nationalist, Christian or Jewish agenda is not considered a crime. Instead, receives Western supports –as given to the brutal war for the creation of Israel, South Sudan and Kurdistan on the Muslim lands.
The dissimilar Muslims
Today’s Muslims look profoundly dissimilar to the early Muslim on many counts. Firstly, they failed very badly to respond to the Call of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la which entails that they must stand for the weak and fight against the tyrants and their falsehood. The Qur’anic Call of the Almighty Allah comes in the following verse: “What happened to you that you do not fight in the way of Allah and for the cause of the oppressed who are men, women and children and who say, “O Our Lord, take us out of this city of the oppressive people and appoint for us from Yourself a protector and appoint for us from Yourself a helper.” –(Sura Nesa, verse 75). Such failure to respond to the Call of Almighty Lord led to other failures. They survive as a Muslim only by name; but not in true faith, practice and morality. Inaction, abstention or submission to the tyrant rulers and accepting their lies has been the way of their life. Therefore, although the tyrant rulers no more survives in Europe, America, Japan, India and other kuffar lands, but thrive in the Muslim World. In fact, the Muslim World is heavily embedded with these brutal despots. In all ages, like today, such tyrants have been the formidable enemies of Islam; and worked as trusted friends of Satan. These are the people who are now working as the partners of the US-led coalition to give sustenance to the imperialist occupation in the Muslim World. Because of the enemy occupation and the consequential deep de-Islamisation, the Divine mission like calling people to the Qur’anic Truth, raising a formidable army of the believers, practising sharia, building an Islamic state and engaging in jihad is now labelled as terrorism.
One can’t comprehend the prophet’s (peace be upon him) mission and the rapid emergence of early Muslims’ as the most powerful civilizational power if he or she fails to understand the survival agenda of the early Muslims. Those early heroes of Islam lived only to please Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and died only to please Him. Such survival objective made them highly committed for the cause of Islam. In fact, this is the most distinctive merits of the early Muslims that helped them build the only true humane civilization on earth. But such qualities of the early Muslims are conspicuously absent in today’s Muslims. Therefore, they make history in other ways. Instead of standing for Islam and the Muslims, they invest their all merits and even life for tribal, racial, national, secular and other anti-Islamic agenda. They look so deeply dissimilar in faith, deeds, politics and culture from the early Muslims that seldom could be labelled as the same Muslims with the same faith, the same vision and the same objective. As a result, the outcomes haven’t been the same either. The earlier Muslims could claim the glory of the best people and best civilization on earth. But now they earn the worst disgrace and humiliation.
The failure & the enemy takeover
Failure breeds more failures. And a chain of failures creates cherished opportunities for the enemy takeover. Invading bugs brings physical death. The invading enemies brings moral, ideological and civilizational death. Now, the whole Muslim World is experiencing the pain of such moral, ideological and civilizational death. Hence, Islam that was practised by the prophet (peace be upon him) and the early Muslims survives only in the holy Qur’an and in the history books, not in any Muslim country. The corrupted beliefs and practices have taken its places. Such catastrophic failure of the Muslims started with the dismantling of the Islamic state that was built by the prophet (peace be upon him) and his companions. An Islamic state and its institutions work as the most powerful transformational social industry to add life-changing concepts, beliefs, ideologies, education, culture and values to the people. A non-Islamic state exactly does the opposite. An Islamic state has no substitute; other institutions like mosques, madrasah, sufi khanqa, family, schools and university can’t do its jobs. In fact, the mass scale production of the best humans was possible only at the time of the Islamic state –established by the prophet (peace by him). Hence, in Islam, it is the most important and the most precious institution, too. It needs the highest amount of sacrifice to secure its existence and sanctity; in fact, more than 70 per cent of the companions had to sacrifice their life for its creation and defence. Narration from the prophet (peace be upon him) emphasizes: “Spending a moment for its defence at the frontier is better than spending the whole night in prayer”. Hence, the prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam took part in that great job, too. He went to the war for more than twenty times. In one of the wars (in Ohud), he was badly wounded and lost his teeth. But later on, the Muslims failed to defend this Divine institution.
With the collapse of the Islamic state (khelafa), the Muslims received the most catastrophic blow to their Islamic faith, identity, security and civilisation. Absence of Islamic state created a political or institutional void that was quickly filled in by a series of hostile states and state-run hostile institutions. Such an inimical state may claim to a be Muslim state; but may make it impossible for its citizens to be a fully practising Muslim by obstructing the practice of sharia, shura, hudud, Muslim unity, jihad and other obligatory prescription of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la. The Muslims thus get deprived of an Islamisation process that is so crucial to help them grow up as true Muslim. Even a kuffar state can build a plenty of roads, shops, schools, hospitals and industries. But, such a state also builds a lot of roads to take the people to the hellfire. Only an Islamic state is an exception; it builds the highway (siratul mustaqeem) to take people to the paradise. Such a highway works through rightly functioning mosques, Islamic rituals, education, legislation, culture, politics, judiciary and warfare.
In absence of an Islamic state, the enemies of Islam –both internal and external, get a free space to work against Islam and the Muslims. They build coercive states and state institutions to corrupt the Muslims’ faith, deeds, culture and morality to take them to the hellfire. This is why, all the imperialistic kuffars are so supportive of the anti-Islamic coercive despots of the Muslim World. These despots are taken as the partner in their war against Islam and Islamists. In order to encounter such a state-led offence, building and defending an Islamic state is crucial. It is so important that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) himself needed to head the Islamic state himself and lead many crucial wars to give it a secure standing in the enemy-infested world. Prophet Dawood (peace be upon him) had to do the same. But now, the story is altogether different. Most of the Muslims now stand against any initiative to establish an Islamic state. They even label any resurgence of Islam as extremism and terrorism. States and state institutions of the Muslim World stay under the full occupation of the people who have no faith in Qur’anic guidance. Because of such occupation by the enemies, a rapid process of de-Islamisation started with full force all over the Muslim World. The huge infrastructures of the secular states are being used to take people away from Islam and to spread all form of evils on earth. Because of scientific advancement, the corruptive power of the modern state and its secular institutions are more pervasive than that existed in the old days of jaheliya. The custodians of the old jaheliya like Nimrod, Pharaoh and Abu Jahl didn’t allow Islamic ideology any access to their own domains. Similarly, the custodians of the new generation of jaheliya like nationalism, secularism, capitalism, socialism, liberalism do not give the Qur’anic prescription any access to their restricted premises of law, politics, judiciary, education, legislation, culture and economics. This way, the ugliest crimes against Allah Sub’hana Ta’la and His Qur’an are being committed in Muslim lands by the Muslims themselves.
Hence, establishing an Islamic state isn’t politics for the Muslims; it is indeed the most important survival need for every believer. Otherwise, he loses the chance to do the full practice of Islam. In its absence, he fails to grow up as a full Muslim. Therefore in Islam, the highest act of piety is not five times prayers, month-long fasting, haj or jakat; but the war for ending the kuffar occupation and establishing or protecting an Islam state. Only this way, a Muslim can save his own iman and the iman of other Muslims. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) did it; his companion did it, too. How a Muslim could be true Muslim without adhering to the prophetic tradition. More than a billion Muslims make five-time prayers a day and keep month-long fasting each year. Many millions of them perform haj and umrah each year. They make lengthy supplication, too. But such rituals and supplication of more than a billion people couldn’t protect the Muslims from the imposed occupation, deaths and destruction. Nor could keep alive the practices of the early Muslims. One who abstains from the Qur’anic Call of Allah Sub’hana of Ta’ala, his supplication and rituals do not work. The enemies also know that such rituals and supplication can’t put any resistance against their occupation, hence they encourage to confine the practice of Islam within such rituals and supplication. But they fear jihad; so the USA needed to forge an international coalition with more than 60 states to fight jihad. So they spread slander against it.
The enemy fortification & the foot-soldiers
To give sustenance to the absence of an Islamic state and its institutions, the enemies of Islam are desperate to keep the occupation for an unending period. Since they want to keep occupation also in the fields of ideology, politics, economics and culture, they are war-ready on every fronts. They deployed a huge number of trained mercenaries not only as foot soldiers in war fields, but also in the fields of intellectual, ideological and cultural warfare. In every Muslim country, the propaganda weapons of the enemies like TV, radio and newspapers get regular supply of intellectual, ideological and cultural ammunitions from these well tamed mercenaries. As per assigned entitlement, they are conspicuously mum on the war crimes of the imperialists, but very vocal to fabricate slanders against Islam and the Islamists. In every Muslim country, they work not only in the government institutions, but also under the banner of Non-Government Organisations (NGO).
To pursue an all-inclusive war strategy from a safe haven, the USA has built its largest embassy not in any of the kuffar lands, but in Islam’s historic heartland like Baghdad. Such castle like embassies are also built in Kabul, Islamabad, Ankara, Riyadh, Cairo, Dhaka, and in other Muslim capitals. Apart from diplomacy, the US staff in these castles do other things to keep alive their imperialistic supremacy. For the same war strategy, they built a large Air Force base in Qatar, a huge Naval base in Bahrain and many Army bases in Saudi Arab, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Oman, Syria and many other places of the Muslim World. It is no secret that the whole of the Muslim World is under their radar. All the Islamist leaders -those who want to take the Muslims back to Islam of the early days, are registered as the targets of the USA’s drone killing. Such killings are going on in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Somalia. Such killing mission is also carried out by their autocratic cronies.
So, the Muslims are left with little choice. Those who survive only to please Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la and are ready to sacrifice their life for a place in paradise could dare to stand up against such imperialist occupation and state terrorism. Others –including the most of the ulama, imams, so-called Islamic scholars, the Muslim intellectuals and the political leaders who live only to fulfill their selfish agenda, have already surrendered to the enemies. So, they are mum, too. They are vocal only against the Islamists who want to establish Islamic state. Like the ulama of the Bani Israel, they have been very successful to hide the Qur’anic Islam from the public eye. As a result of their wide spread evil, Islam that prescribes sharia, hudud, shura, khelafa, Muslim unity and jihad in the way of Allah Sub’hana wa Ta’la stands stranger in the Muslim World and even gets abused inside the mosque as terrorism!
